Watch the Allah-Las Get Dreamy at Amoeba Hollywood

Allah Las

Backed by the LA based label, Innovative Leisure, the Allah-Las have managed to take their garage/surf-rock sound to an international audience. With tour dates across Europe, Asia, and Australia, the band is racking up frequent flyer miles and growing their fanbase the good ol' fashioned way: touring, touring, and more touring. The group's busy schedule brought them stateside for a special in-store performance at Amoeba Hollywood. Playing to a packed house of devotees of all ages, The Allah-Las brought with them some extra arsenal. On stage the band featured six musicians total, including a percussionist, a keyboard player, and a slide guitar player. The result was a nice warm wall of sound that would make Arthur Lee proud. The Allah-Las are no strangers to Amoeba Hollywood. In fact, Pedrum Siadatian (lead guitar), Matt Correia (drums), and Spencer Dunham (bass) were all employees during the early days of the band back in 2008!

The former Amoebites teamed up with producer and labelmate Nick Waterhouse to deliver their signature Southerrn Cali, lo-fi, surfer sonics on their sophomore effort, Worship The Sun (Innovative Leisure). The band has grown as performers and songwriters since their 2012 self-titled debut and the result is a much more mature sound on Worship the Sun.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode With R&B Singer Jhene Aiko

Jhene Aiko at Amoeba Hollywood

Seamlessly blurring the lines of modern R&B and pop-oriented Hip Hop, Jhene Aiko is a new brand of singer. Some have said Aiko is the female answer to Frank Ocean, while other critics have drawn comparisons to the late great Aaliyah. Starting out in the '90s as a pre-teen, Aiko supplied backing vocals for R&B group B2K. In 2003, at just 15 years old, Aiko was set to release her solo debut via Sony/Epic Records. When the album was shelved Aiko made the decision to go back to school. Eight years later, Aiko returned to music delivering her first mixtape, .sailing soul(s). in March 2011. Nine months later she signed a recording contract with producer No I.D.'s label Artium, distributed by Def Jam.  

Jhene Aiko Souled OutJhene Aiko has been hard at work since her return to the spotlight. In 2013 she released the EP, Sail Out (Island/Def Jam) and landed an opening spot touring with Nas and Lauryn Hill. In 2014, Aiko followed up with her full-length, Souled Out (Island/Def Jam). Her album titles are in reference to a record executive who once advised she must "sell out" in order to succeed in the music industry. Aiko has since been a vocalist in demand, recording tracks for rappers Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Childish Gambino. With a strong work ethic and a down to earth attitude, Aiko is bound to be pop music's next "it girl." She is on tour this month, playing Club Nokia in Los Angeles December 7 and The Warfield in San Francisco December 10. See her full tour dates here.
